- EPKatonah00Fantastic experience!We were a large group of seven and couldn’t have enjoyed our time enough! Dinara made three items with us which we chose, and then she provided a delicious salad as well. She was an incredibly comfortable teacher, and had wonderful stories to share about Georgia as well. Everyone left full and happy. A perfect afternoon!
- Vytautas A00Highly recommendedTina met us at Desertiz Bazar in the morning, we had a 30min walk around the market and selected everything we needed. One of us did not eat meat, one ate everything, and one was a child - Tina attended to all of our needs, and we chose only the products that would meet our need, which is super cool. Then we drove to Tinas place, and started cooking. About 10 different meals, which was way more than enough :) Then our son got sleepy, so Tina aranged a bed for him to sleep in, and he slept there for more than an hour :) We finished eating around noon, and we really enjoyed the whole experience.
- Soso1100Fantastic hospitalityWe first took a trip to the market, which is an experience in itself. You will cook and talk and learn a lot about culture and history, basically anything you would like to know about Georgia. Be prepared to spend more time than planned (should you want to) 😊
- arnoldemilyj00Fun Georgian Cooking Experience!Dinara was wonderfully welcoming! My husband and I had a wonderful time learning to make traditional Georgian cuisine (we asked to make Khinkali and Ostri). Dinara walked us through the cooking process and was so open about Tbilisi and Georgian culture. Our food turned out delicious and it was such such great wat to spend the evening!
- georgiaruthw00AN INCREDIBLE HIGHLIGHT!My partner Cam and I had a truly delightful evening cooking, talking, and eating with Teo and her mother Tina. It was a highlight of our whole trip, both in and outside Georgia, to be invited to the home of such a welcoming, interesting family, and to learn to cook delicious traditional cuisine with the freshest ingredients. We’ve taken the Ajapsandali recipe Teo kindly wrote out for us and cooked it in London, now West Africa (I cook it weekly here!), and certainly home to Australia in the new year. Can’t thank Teo and Tina enough for their hospitality and warmth. With the best of wishes, Georgia and Cam
- NastassjaT700Introduction to Georgian hospitalityOn my first day in Tbilisi, I had an amazing cooking experience and introduction to Georgian cuisine. The food was prepared with love and there was plenty of food. I enjoyed spending time with Teona and her siblings in their beautiful charming kitchen. I highly recommend this experience ☺️
- Joan J00A great cultural eveningWe spent a lovely evening learning how a typical Georgian family lives.. Teo, a recent med school grad, welcomed us into her home where we met her mom and several younger brothers and sisters. We accompanied her to her local market where she selected cheese and vegetables/fruit for our dinner and appetizers. We also stopped to pick up some warm baked bread. We helped her assemble a lovely dinner after we feasted on her father’s homemade wine and honey along with several cheeses and bread. Then we helped her make salad, eggplant, chicken in tomato and vegetable sauce and cornmeal porridge (like polenta) and cornmeal and cheese fried balls. The best thing was talking with her and her mom about their culture and our culture and getting to know them on a personal basis.
- sage_and_inga00Delightful evening, delicious food!We had such a lovely time with Nino and Lia! After a week of eating out, it was great to learn details about the food we had been enjoying, and to gain some insight into how it is prepared. The meal we had was vegetarian (by request), and everything was fresh and seasonal, including green beans from Lia's garden. We got to try our hands at both corn bread and khachapuri, and we are excited to hone our skills back home – though we will miss the expert guidance of our hosts. Nino and Lia were very open and we felt immediately comfortable with them. It was fun to be in their home, and fascinating to be able to talk to them about Georgia and Georgian cuisine.
- Ehud A00Very goodGreat home experience with Lasha and his mother in her apartment together with home cooked meal Both the company and the food were perfect
- Ihatetrumpandpence00Teonas classIt was a wonderful experience with Teona's mother Tina. We loved the market visit, the cooking experience and the conversation. Felt like we had made a friend for life!
- pixleyo00Georgian cuisine.Tina, (Teo's mom) was very welcoming and showed me around the different food markets explaining, in detail, what to look for in certain ingredients. At home, Tina, went above and beyond. She encouraged me to cook alongside her. I hope to come back soon.
- acdallagnol00Fun, useful and unforgettable experienceMy fiancée and I really wanted to learn how to make the georgian stuffed eggplant, therefore we decided to look for a cooking lesson in Tbilisi where we could learn how to make them! Teo did not only teach us how to make what we wanted, but she also prepared some extra dishes that were amazing! Her boyfriend brought his family’s wine and it was a perfect meal. I would highly recommend this experience! Unfortunately Teo’s mom could not be there, but we still had fun and learned a bit about Georgian food and traditions 😁
- SusanneaG00Great afternoon with Shota and his familyWhen Shota picked us up for the market tour it felt from the very first moment as if we had known him before, it was like visiting friends. We went to a huge market where we did the shopping for our recipes and it was a great place to smell, taste and look. After the market tour we went to the family's home where we had a warm welcome and again it felt like visiting friends. They all speak very good English (Shota also speaks German) and so communication was easy and we learned a lot about the country and the capital Tbilisi. We spent a wonderful afternoon cooking an old family recipe - chicken with walnut sauce. It was fascinating to see how the walnut-mixture changed and finally we had a delicious sauce and homemade walnut oil. Later we enjoyed the delicious meal with the family and afterwards a good cup of coffee on the stylish balcony. We enjoyed this day very much and would highly recommend cooking and touring the market with Shota.
- ckoshuta00A slice of life in Tbilisi with ShotaShota is an engaging young man and excellent host. We opted for the meal only option (no lesson or market tour) and it was fabulous. Shota had prepared the meal ahead of time, so we were able to sit on the balcony and enjoy a glass of wine and conversation before heading to the dining table. The recipes are his grandmother's and Shota explained the ingredients and methods to us. The food was wonderful! We had an opportunity to meet his father and sister also--more great conversation (all in excellent English). We did take extra wine to share (easily purchased in one of the many wine shops in Tbilisi) in addition to the delicious local wine Shota served. The only hitch was when the corkscrew broke, but Shota quickly called over the deck to the neighbor who promptly tossed one over. It was so enriching to experience a slice of Georgian life and hear the perspectives of a bright young twenty-something person (we are in our sixties). We stayed for several hours sharing stories, music and food. This was our first Traveling Spoon experience and we were completely delighted. I highly recommend Shota's dinner to anyone visiting Tbilisi regardless of age!
- sradhakr0100A great experience with Shota and familyShota and his family were really fantastic hosts-- from the moment I arrived at their stunning, plant-filled Mtasminda apartment, I was greeted with lovely music and conversation and learned to make pkhali and lobio, while regaled with homemade lemonade. Had really lovely conversation, and Shota was keen to follow-up on confusing bits of recipes, and after hearing that I'd wanted to experience nightlife in Tbilisi, even invited me out to meet his friends and checked in a few times during my stay in Georgia to offer advice. Couldn't recommend more!
